India’s wicketkeeper batsman MS Dhoni undoubtedly ranks among the finest cricketers of the modern generation. Dhoni is adored by masses all across the globe and very recently Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone admitted about his admiration for the former India captain.

However, Deepika’s sister Anisha Padukone has a slightly different point of view as he reckons that the 3-year-old should hang up his boots from T20 internationals. Anisha, who herself is a sportsperson and plays golf, has recently appeared in an episode of 'BFFs with Vogue' with sister Deepika wherein she was asked to name one cricketer who should retire from cricket.

Before marrying to Sakshi in 2010, Dhoni was rumoured to be dating Deepika. If the reports are to be believed, Dhoni had cut his long hair back in 2007 because of Deepika’s request. However, neither the legendary wicketkeeper batsman nor the glamorous actress have ever talked about it.

Besides Deepika, there are quite a lot of Bollywood celebrities who admire Dhoni’s cool and calm nature. The likes of Shahrukh Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput have often confessed about their admiration for the Jharkhand man.

Earlier this month, IPL retention was held in Bangalore wherein Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had retained the services of Dhoni beside Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja. Since CSK along with Rajasthan Royals (RR) was barred from the IPL for the past two editions, Dhoni has led and played for the dysfunctional Rising Pune Supergiant side.

Meanwhile, Dhoni is currently in South Africa where the Men in Blue are scheduled to feature in the limited-overs leg of the tour. India will play six ODIs and three ODIs against the Proteas from February 1 to February 24.
